For all my friends who, like me, for decades loved The Golden Camel Mongolian BBQ on Hawthorne Blvd., near Torrance Blvd., and who, like me, mourned the decline of this favorite local after its transfer of ownership (the new owners MESSED WITH THE SAUCES!!! YOU NEVER MESS WITH THE SAUCES!!!) . . . I have excellent news!! On a whim last night, I decided to give my old haunt one last chance . . . and almost drove away upon seeing it had been completely remodeled and turned into a half ramen half Mongolian restaurant with a new name . . . SO glad I didn't!! I was hesitant until I stepped through the door and saw a familiar face . . . the previous owner!!!! I was totally blown away!! He told me that he purchased the restaurant back (no surprise the morons who had bought it from him went out of business!) . . . my initial skepticism was replaced with hopeful optimism . . . Despite the remodel and somewhat different set up . . . everything was there . . . including the sauces . . . From my first bite I realized . . . MONGO IS BACK!!!! It isn't often one is afforded the opportunity to regain a decades long favorite like this once lost . . . This is one of those opportunities! So get the word out!! Let's support this man by returning to the place we all loved for so long! By the way..... there is still a small sign in the window that says "Golden Camel Mongolian BBQ" . . . so the old name has not completely gone away!
Great food to-go! Went in on a Saturday night @ 9:30.(they're open til 10: 30 ) Ordered the Family Dinner #C, for two. Was so much food! enough for four people! The soup was hot and everything else was real tasty. The only ���� was no napkins or utensils in the bag. Otherwise it was a great meal under $30.! April 25th 2015
Good local place for mongolian bbq but the restaurant itself is stuck in the 70s. Place could use some updating but the food is cheap and good.
